Top 5 Photographers to Look Out For in 2021

We haven't seen the world as much as we would have liked to in 2020. The beauty of social media is that there are multiple platforms where we can share the most incredible pictures we've been able to capture, no matter what restrictions we are under. Bournemouth and its residents are no exception...

Ben Ide, Founder: Ben’s Wood Den

I started doing it as it's always been a hobby. I've been doing woodwork since I was about 12. I don't have got any qualifications on paper; just taught myself over the years. I actually had my own carpentry business a few years ago now -- not called Ben's Wood Den - but I ended up stopping it because it was rather stressful. Too much work and I couldn't keep on top of it...

Lauren Stephenson, Illustrator

Before uni, I took two years out. I couldn't decide what to do and I got some experience with animal welfare. But eventually I went back to what I did when I was younger, when I wasn't enjoying what I was doing. In my year off I did a portfolio, and that's when I applied for the foundation course to get into uni...

Krishna Malla (a.k.a. Tech Moon), Graffiti Artist

It's been a slow game -- it took a long time to get to where I am today. I started in the events industry. When I graduated from uni, I shamelessly promoted myself and a lot of other artists as well with the event that I was working on. That gave me a platform to make a mark on the place where I am living, and also create work at the same time. Jobs have just snowballed off that and grown bigger and bigger. Each mural that I paint is a kind of billboard in itself, so it works for advertising...

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise. As a collagist, I’m influenced by the Dada and Pop Art movements. There's also definitely a Punk aesthetic. I’m obsessed with lurid Day-Glo colours, and I’m trying not just to appropriate photographs, but often to annihilate them...

Sisi Zombori, Food Sculptor

Who said food is just for eating? Szimonetta Zombori shows people every day numerous artworks that, instead of taking form in clay or on a...

Immy Fooks, Artist / Illustrator

I will jot things down as soon as they come into my head before I forget, and then start mind-mapping my ideas on a page. Then I would probably do some initial sketches, to get an idea of what it is that I want to visualise. I’m inspired by artists such as Vincent van Gogh and illustrators like Katie Scott, who makes botanical illustrations, and Camilla Perkins. Her artwork is amazing, I really like it as it’s very colourful and I’m drawn to colour and pattern...

Daniel Wretham, Photographer

Originally I purchased my first camera in my twenties, which was a film camera. I mainly shot wildlife and the occasional sunset with it, as I was very much a newbie and just shot things that interested me. But this fuelled my passion for it, despite film shooting being a lot more tricky to master than digital...
